This report describes the work program and results of the "Statewide Boating Access Facilities Inventory and Economic Study Including a Pilot Study for Lee County, Florida" commissioned by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) in 2005. The study was funded in part by a grant to the FWC from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and by Lee County. The scope and objectives of the study are summarized in the introduction, and the subsequent sections report on the various components of the study.

For many years, Florida has been among the fastest growing states in the nation, which means that its resources, infrastructure, and facilities are continually under pressure. Maintaining the quality of the state is natural resources and access to its waters depends on making informed management decisions using the best scientific data and analyses available.


Funding for this inventory and economic study has been provided by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Federal Aid in Sport Fish Restoration Boating Access Program (Grant Award RFP NO. FWC 04/05-23), Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Division of Law Enforcement, Office of Boating and Waterways, and Lee County Board of County Commissioners through their Natural Resources Division.
